party with people in it. i asked them to stop. many of us tried to pull them off the tent. yes, in that sense apparently i did provoke the four unanswered punches to my face. call me a provoketor, sean. >> what a lot of people may not know, right to work means you don't have to join a union to get a job. in other words, you don't have to pay union deuce to work at a company. in other words, you have freedom of choice so there's a lot at stake here. >> there's a huge amount at stake. you see most americans want the right to work. union, being a union manufacturing job, that's one of the biggest threats you can have to your job security. you look at the number of the manufacturing jobs shipped overseas in the union sector versus the nonunion sector. it's several fold higher. and to give you prove americans right now are angry by this, this video went out about 3:00, 4:00 today and there's already been $6,000 coming in in donations to find the perpetrator from this video. there's a lien drawn in the sand and there are republicans and there are true conservatives out there laying i

becomes clear is that this weapon was guise. and it's the same weapon, a variety of that weapon is used by military forces. it was the same weapon, a variety of which was used by the d.c. sniper and the image, i think, of this person armed for combat with this long rifle, with 5 and 7-year-olds on the other side of it, i think, is going to heighten the intensity of the political debate of guns in the wake of this. and there's already article. a "new york times" article today about michael cooper about what will happen with the gun debate. we've had sorts of stories written after abby gifford was shot. it seems like something has changed but maybe it's because of the moral obscenity that it's so past anything conceivable. and so, i wanted to trace for a moment, as we're thinking about where the white house is going to be on the. everyone is talking about the president, where the president has been in the past. what the trajectory of his stance on this issue is. he's moved in one direction and quite directionally without much wavering back and forth. as a young politician he was in the ar
